Giffords Q2 Fundraising Results: $562K

Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords has released her second-quarter fundraising numbers. Between April 1 and June 30, the campaign raised $562,137.97.

Giffords ended the quarter with more than $2 million on hand and has raised nearly $2.5 million since the November 2006 election.

Michael McNulty, chairman of the Giffords campaign, noted that the dollars raised in the second quarter came from 1,898 individual contributors, with an average individual contribution of about $200. Roughly four out of five of Giffords’ contributors came from Arizona, McNulty said.

Giffords will face Republican Tim Bee, who has not yet released his second-quarter results. Bee will get a big financial boost later this week, when President George W. Bush comes to Tucson for a breakfast fundraiser.
